This is still going on plane, but meanwhile I've managed to cobble together
things on rain to bring the index up to date.  There are some missing articles
in late August and maybe also some in September, and it isn't currently
updating each night (I need to find more sealing wax and string for that to
work).

Unless I'm doing something wrong, I only see the last few messages for
gmane.emacs.devel (since September 23 or so).  In Gnus I don't see any
of the below (written as a Gnus range):

(97084 99471 101343 101412 101419 101641 102191 102198 102208 102433
102947 102954 102957 (102963 . 102964) 104302 104311 104326 104443
(105634 . 105635) 106168 108136 108312 108330 108409 108464 108831
108836 108961 108964 109140 109143 (109146 . 109147) 109149 109151
109156 109165 112611 112718 113013 113324 113717 113807 114040 114099

Are those on the server?  If so I'll dig into why Gnus is not seeing
them, but it's looking like a GMane problem.

Thanks

Something odd about overview files on news.gmane.org

They don't seem to be generated totally as they should in some groups.

This is a test.

	I wonder, is the problem below somehow related to the issue?
	(At least, I don't recall Gmane ever expiring the articles.)

Yes.

After investigating a bit, the issue seems to be a raid1 array that's
inconsistent.  Sometimes the NOV files are short, other times they are
long.  And I can't see any other explanation for that other than an
inconsistent raid. 

I've now started a "repair" on the volume, so I'm crossing my fingers.
That should (at least) stabilise the situation, and I can proceed to
repair the overview files after that.  (If it's needed after that.)

I get many nntp article missing errors lately. If I purge the group clean 
then re-download the headers, I can't go more than several days. 

Anybody is experiencing the same as well? 

Thanks

Then the mailing list is probably dropping your messages.

I suspect so. Just tried to subscribe directly & got a:
Remote host said: 550 5.7.1 <discuss+subscribe <at> documentfoundation.org>:
Recipient address rejected: Mail appears to be spam or forged and is
rejected due to policy. Correct your HELO or DNS MX settings and get

I'll see if I can get a list administrator to sort it out. Thanks.
